This thangka shows the Medicine Buddha in sitting (Dhyana Aasan) position on a multi-colorelotus platform. There are also pink lotus flowers adorning his aura (and petals of the throne are in pink, too) which signify that he is a well-revered Buddha as pink lotus is reserved for the high deities. Per tradition, he wears layers of monk’s robe and attributes of the Buddha such as the long earlobes (as an all-hearing enlightened being) and the three lines one neck among others. Zoom in on his left hand and a jar sits on top of his hand which said to contain medicine nectar. This hand is on a palm-upward position that signifies meditative stability. Notice a plant growing on the jar which is said to be the myrobalan plant whose fruit carries healing properties. On his right hand is a stem of what appears to be Aruna fruit. He is also seen doing the gift-giving mudra (Varada mudra) with his right hand. The Medicine Buddha is also depicted with blue skin which is heavily associated with lapis-lazuli. This metamorphic rock is considered a semi-precious stone and holds a rich blue color and composes the vast majority if the Buddha’s Pure Land.
